Mykonos has always been a wonderful juxtaposition between traditional life and a cosmopolitan jet set lifestyle. By the 1950s the island was already among ‘the’ most fashionable destinations for celebrities from all over the world. Tale also has it that the rocks have a unique energy capable of soothing the soul and lightening the mood the minute you set foot on the island. Today, Mykonos is an island full of hidden gems; some are known and other are yet to be discovered…
Every building, every beach, every rock, has its story to tell… if you are looking to spend a few days in the island I recommend the following:
Discover the Chora of Mykonos and walk through the white narrow alleys full of cafes, shops, ateliers and famous people. Walk through Matogiani before you end up for sunset drinks in Little Venice. Dinner in Sea Satin or Aqua, next to the water is relaxing and will get you into the mood of the island.
